DKA team complete Bath Half 2015

3 March 2015

Nervous side glancing, nail biting, encouraging shoulder hugging, and the odd outburst of “ARGH! We’re doing this!” ricocheted around the group.

It was the 1st March and six of the DKA team were about to run the 2015 Bath Half, raising money for Alzheimer’s Society.

The atmosphere was like nothing they had ever experienced, literally thousands had come to watch their friends, family and (especially in their case) colleagues run the 13 miles around the beautiful city. After some minutes, they gained on the start line, there was one final shout of “GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!” and they were off…

This was the first time most had run any type of race, they had trained hard, they had suffered injuries but most of all they were enthusiastic and later every one finished the race with a beaming smile.

They achieved an average finishing time of 137 minutes and 30 seconds, collectively burning approximately 10,000 calories, and raising £917.50 (and counting) for The Alzheimer’s Society.

We’re so proud that the whole DKA running team finished the race, the office has been buzzing ever since and they’ve not stopped talking about their amazing feat.

Congratulations to Adrian Abbs, Becky Cook, Jo Griffin, David Munday, David Robinson and David Yeates.

You’ve done yourselves, your charity, the city and all of us very proud.
